Over The Hills And Far Away  John Tams


[G]Here's forty shillings [C]on the drum
[G]For those who volun[D]teer to come,
[G]To 'list and fight the f[C]oe today
[G]Over the Hills and far aw[D]ay


[G]O'er the hills and o[C]'er the main

[G]Through Flanders, Portug[D]al and Spain
[G]King George commands and w[C]e obey
[G]Over the hills and far[D] away
When duty calls me I must go
To stand and face another foe
But part of me will always stray
Over the hills and far away


If I should fall to rise no more
As many comrades did before
Then ask the fifes and drums to play
Over the hills and far away


Then fall in lads behind the drum
With colours blazing like the sun
Along the road to come what may
Over the hills and far away

(Chorus) x4

By James Lewis & Taxi Andy!
